Burger Joint, New York, NY

Burger Joint Restaurant Review

: Even people who stay in the swank Le Parker Meridien like a good ol' burger once in a while, so hidden behind a curtain in a corner of the lobby is this secret snack bar serving all those naughty cravings. The short menu offers grilled burgers with "The Works" (lettuce, tomato, onion, pickles, mustard, ketchup and mayo), fries, milkshakes and beer on tap. You can also order a pickle or a brownie with vanilla ice cream, but it's mostly all about the burger, a beef patty made with Black Angus Nebraska beef shoulder and served on an Arnold hamburger bun. A few words of advice: Bring cash (credit cards aren't accepted) and know what you want to order by the time you reach the front of the line. Slumming never felt so good.
